My new menu ideas

Ever get tired of having the same old thing? I get into these modes where every week tastes the same as every other week. I lack the creativity, the energy, the motivation. I just want to give my kids something that I know they will like and the next thing you know, we get caught in a rut.

My new idea is to brainstorm all my ideas for food I know they will like and then cook all of them before I go back and remake any of them. I broke down the list into categories and we will see how it goes. Here is the starting list. Some things might be switched out, but at least I know they like everything on the list.
